Explore Half-Life in VR in just over a month.


Valve has announced a release date for Half-Life: Alyx, the VR spin-off and long-awaited return of the Half-Life franchise. The game, exclusive to compatible VR headsets, will be released on March 23, 2020.

Developer Valve announced the release date with a tweet linking to the Steam page, which is still offering the 10% off pre-order price. This is the first indication of a new release date we've seen since it was originally announced for March 2020, though Valve did recently note that it didn't expect any delays since the game was essentially finished.

Now Playing: Valve Announces Half-Life: Alyx Release Date - GS News Update

Half-Life: Alyx is a virtual reality game and works with multiple VR headsets. As the name suggests, it stars the popular character Alyx Vance. Set between Half-Life and Half-Life 2, Alyx isn't exactly Half-Life 3, but it is a full-Half-Life game--the first since Half-Life 2: Episode 2, which was released 13 years ago.

Half-Life: Alyx is one of our most anticipated games of 2020. If you want to make sure you're ready for March 23, read up on deals for compatible virtual reality headsets and the PC system specs.
